About the Aglianico Grape

Aglianico is a dark-skinned top-quality southern Italian grape. It is long thought to be of Greek origin. DNA profiling has failed to find a relationship with any known Greek variety. First planted around the Greek colony of Cumae, close to present-day Avellino. It is today cultivated in the mountainous center of Italy’s south. In particular, in the provinces Campania and Basilicata. Scattered traces of this early-budding vine variety are also found in other areas. These include Calabria, Puglia, and Molise.

Italy’s total plantings were 9,910 ha/24,488 acres in 2010. The vine can ripen so late even this far south that harvest happens in November. Attempts to pick it earlier, or to increase yields, lead to a failure to tame its rather ferocious tannins. The grape’s best wines are deep in color. Full chocolate and plum aromas, fine-grained tannins, and marked acidity on the palate. Aglianico seems to prefer soils of volcanic origin. It achieves its finest results in Taurasi and Aglianico del Vulture in Basilicata. Here elevations are lower and the wines rather softer and earlier-maturing. Its nobility is so evident that it is now grown in both Australia and California.
